At the same event last year, 18 funds had committed $415 million to Vietnamese startups for three years, and $220 million of this was disbursed in the first half of this year.

Investment in Vietnamese tech startups in the first six months fell 22 percent year-on-year to $222 million due to the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a report by Ho Chi Minh City-based venture capital firm Do Ventures.

Among six major economies in Southeast Asia, Vietnam accounted for 16 percent of the latest investment pledges, ranking third behind Singapore (37 percent) and Indonesia (30 percent), it added.

A recent report by U.S.-based consulting firm McKinsey & Company says 12 large digital ecosystems (companies providing services across sectors) will be established across retail and services in Vietnam by 2025, creating a revenue pool of about $100 billion.
